volume control should affect active speaker

Bug #230408 reported by Kevin Hunter on 2008-05-14

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
pulseaudio (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Setup: Plug in USB headphones, and set sound preferences to direct all sound to the USB Audio. Being playing music, or otherwise using the headphones.

Action: Press up/down volume keys on keyboard

Actual results: only main volume is affected.

Espected results: active speaker device should have volume modified, not only main volume.

Caveat: more than one speaker can be active at the same time. e.g. I might be listening to music via the laptop speakers, and conversing over VoIP via a USB headset. How should this scenario be handled? Some USB headsets have a volume control on their wire. Perhaps instead of dealing with the main volume, that headset can handle just the volume for its wire?

I am indeed using PulseAudio.

Suggest changing this from "Incomplete" status to something else. This way, it won't time out if no one has a chance to properly diagnose this before 2 months from now.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue that you reported is one that should be reproducible with the live environment of the Desktop CD of the development release Karmic Koala. It would help us greatly if you could test with it so we can work on getting it fixed in the next release of Ubuntu. You can find out more about the development release at http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/ . Thanks again and we appreciate your help.

On the money! This particular bug seems squashed! The volume level buttons appear to affect the playing speaker, not just the main ones. Some /other/ ones popped up, but that's how it goes, eh?

Cheers.
